Kristy Doot is a senior double-major in English and Classics. After spending last spring in Egypt, she is back on campus as a Meridian and member of both Vocal Point and Delta Gamma Sorority. Kristy’s presence will be missed by many when she joins Teach For America next year in New Orleans after graduation for an entirely new experience.

With two majors and a number of activities you must be very busy. How do you keep up?

My schedule gets kind of crazy sometimes and I try to stay very organized so that I can keep up with everything. With that said, I’m not a very organized person so sometimes I just have to cross my fingers that I’m showing up at the right place at the right time.

What led you to do Teach For America in New Orleans?

I knew that I wanted to go into education (even though I don’t necessarily know that I want to be a teacher) and Teach for America is a really great opportunity for people who aren’t sure what they want to do, but know they want to make a difference.

Care to share any memories or parting words of wisdom?

If I had to do something differently I probably would never have tried to be pre-med freshman year. That was a huge waste of credit hours. Props to you future doctors, but no thanks for me.

What’s your favorite curse word?

Are you even allowed to curse in the CT?

What sound or noise do you love?

Vocal Point!

What sound or noise do you hate?

I hate listening to people try to be quiet in the Periodical Reading Room. I’d almost rather they talk out loud instead of whispering really loudly. Seriously, don’t talk, or say something interesting loud enough that I can hear.

The fact that this market hasn’t been tapped yet astounds me. There are so many reasons to transform into a pig!
